Jennifer Lawrence in Passengers

It’s been a turbulent week for Sony but the studio is moving forward full-speed ahead on the long-awaited realization of Jon Spaihts‘ sci-fi script Passengers. Director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game, Headhunters) just came on to direct earlier this week, a couple months after Sony grabbed rights to the script following failed development efforts at other companies. And now Jennifer Lawrence is in early talks to play one of the two lead roles, which instantly turns Passengers into a top-tier project — assuming her schedule allows her to sign on.

Specifically, the fact Chris Pratt‘s character apparently has control of a pack of Velociraptors, those unstoppable, evil dinosaur from the first three movies.

It’s rare that we get to see as quick a change as we do from the original Jurassic World theatrical trailer and this new Super Bowl spot.

Quite a few shots appear in both trailers, but more than half a dozen look at least a bit different. Some are massively changed. Check out side-by-side comparison of old and updated Jurassic World effects below. Read More »
